The Heat Conference 2012

The Heat Conference 2012 is jointly hosted by the Combined Heat and Power Association and the Energy Institute.

The Heat Conference 2012, to be held in London on Thursday 15 November, will provide a timely opportunity for debate and discussion, placing heat on the agenda of policy makers and industry decision makers at the highest level. Heat accounts for nearly half of the UK's energy use and associated CO2 emissions. To meet the UK's greenhouse gas emissions targets, major cuts in heat-related emissions will be required.

This unique event is jointly hosted by the Combined Heat and Power Association and the Energy Institute and will consider the needs of heat users, the role of gas-based heat infrastructure into the future, the opportunities presented by electric heating, the potential of heat networks and the role of heat in a smarter energy system.
Invited speakers include:

- Ed Davey, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change
- Dr David Clarke, Chief Executive, Energy Technologies Institute
- Industry representatives from organisations including the Citigroup, Tata Chemicals, BDR Thermea, E.ON and Scottish and Southern Energy.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
